If you’re painting your home in stages, make sure you find colors that blend together in your overall long-term plan. Try not to use more than 2 or 3 different colors throughout your home. If you like variation, use different shades of each color, but make sure they all blend together in your overall plan!
For dramatic impact, you can experiment with one wall as a ‘feature wall’ & make a theatrical, spectacular statement! This way you can also see whether you like & feel comfortable with incorporating a bit of dramatic ‘look at me’ impact into a room, & how you feel about the intensity of the color. Its better to start with a lighter version of the color – you can always darken the intensity. That’s easier than the other way around.
